    as a volley ball game the originl DOAX was pretty good and all the collecting of the swim suites gave you some bonus stuff to do now in DOAX2 the volley ball has gone to crap compared to the first . just way to much goofy stuff happens like going for a set and having the ball just roll down the front of your face , or the ball just bounce right off you and out of bounds when you go to bumpas a volley ball game the originl DOAX was pretty good and all the collecting of the swim suites gave you some bonus stuff to do now in DOAX2 the volley ball has gone to crap compared to the first . just way to much goofy stuff happens like going for a set and having the ball just roll down the front of your face , or the ball just bounce right off you and out of bounds when you go to bump it , or when you go to set or bump it or spike it and nothing happens your charicter just stands there or just runs off in some weird way. now it would be one thing if this happend rarely but it happens ALL THE TIME even to the AI team . then there is the jet ski racing which is ok except when you bump in to some thing which sends you flying all over the damn place also a track selection would have been nice. there is also flag chasing and butt bumping which is just dumb i did find the water slide thing kind of fun . pool hoping is also back but to me it doest work as well as it did in the first and its still boring as hell. Team ninja couldnt come up with better mini games then this? hell there exploiting the DOA girls might as well go for broke and do a wet T-shirt contest , strip Beer Pong , and mud wrestling for mini games. the graphics are ok the girls still lack any real graphical detail and there hair still looks awful.

    Let me get this out of the way: the character animations and the effect the physics engine has on theme are just great, which is the only reason everyone bought this. The gameplay is horrible, though. It never explains what your objectives are, or what uses miscelaniouse items have. One good thing I have to say concerning the presentation is that the instruction mannuel is nice, colorful, Let me get this out of the way: the character animations and the effect the physics engine has on theme are just great, which is the only reason everyone bought this. The gameplay is horrible, though. It never explains what your objectives are, or what uses miscelaniouse items have. One good thing I have to say concerning the presentation is that the instruction mannuel is nice, colorful, and thick with fiftey pages. The graphics are okay, but the sound is the worst I've ever heard in a video game. Seriously, I have more than a hundred, and I can say without heasitating that this game has the most annoying music and voices ever. The vioces are overly high pitched and make the girls sound like bimbos, which is a huge turn off. Thankfully there is an option to turn to Japanise voices with English subtitles so at least I have no idea if the voices are good or not in that laguage. Also, go look up the soundtrack. Who listens to that noise? Not me, not you, NOBODY!! It's the kind of stuff a twelve year old girl would listen to, and I don't think that this game is supposed to appeal to that demographic. In the end I actually muted my tv. The gameplay is the biggest turn off. The minigames and volleyball are mindless and overly simple. At the begining of the game you are given a partner, and after you are done with a bunch of unskippable text box dialogues, you'll be bored with it, and to make matters worse, she leaves in a matter of days. You can not play volleyball (which isn't even in the game's title anymore) without a partner. That is when the game forces you to partner up with some girls by constantly giving them gifts. This is the part that I really hate because they're all major b------. Here I am giving them fiftey thousand dollar pizzas and toaster ovens, and they either reject it or send it back without any appreciation. Speaking of which, what's with having billions of dollars and all the items costing that much. Those are some big numbers! What is this, Disgaea? And they NEVER accept! What else are they gonna do all day? One more thing is that you cant change characters. If you think that you may have picked the wrong one, well you're stuck with her. I don't know if you're allowed to change characters in a later period in the game. The camera mode controles are so akward, and you cant change them! There LEFT stick controles your vision, and the RIGHT stick controles your movement. WHY?! Why change what everyone's used to? If your character moves suddenly, I jerk the right stick by instinct, but I end up looking somewhere else because I panned the entire camera position instead of changing the angle. Also, it's kind of creepy how they call your photo album "preciouse memories." The game feels like it's avoiding the reason why gamers bought this. I didn't buy this game to grind through minigames and give presents to people who reject them the every time. If I bought this game for full price I would hate it, and I just finished ripping the daylights out of it, but I didn't buy it for $60, I bought it used in perfect condition for $10, so it's worth its price and a semi-high score for it. If your buying it for anything higher, than you're getting ripped off. Not that anything I say would matter, EVERYONE'S going to get this game for the sake of curiosity, but just be warned. Expand

  1. A nice game to look at in areas, but not overly fun to play. Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 is worth a rent to see what Team Ninja can do in the high-def age, but I won't be adding this one to my collection.

    Dead or Alive: Xtreme 2 is what happens when you tinker too much with a perfect formula -- and not in the name of improvement. This is the Dead or Alive that, quite frankly, critics of Team Ninja have been hoping for -- a soulless, poorly executed title slathered in truly shameless fan service that not even those who would use it for dirty deeds could force themselves to sit through. It's as ridiculous as the individual breast physics that it entails.

    Although the visuals are nice and there isn't a better game out there for ogling digital women, the new mini-games are a poor excuse for added gameplay and too much of the first game was recycled.
